Day 1 = Done!

This may not seem like a success story but for me it is. Yesterday I completed Day 1. I have always started Day 1 strong but as they day went on I always slipped and said I will start again next week. Last night when I laid down I felt something I haven't felt in a while. Proud!!! It's going to be a long road but hour by hour I am more confident that this time is different. Feel free to add my as a friend. I'm going to need all the support and motivation a guy can get.

    That sounds like a success story to me! Starting is the hardest part. Sometimes I have to take it minute by minute in the face of temptation! Congratulations and goodluck!

    I have the same struggle! Each day I start off great! Then by the end of the day my cravings become too strong and I'm having such a hard time resisting the sweets. Keep up the good work!

    That's great! One successful day leads to another successful day, then a successful week..........being on track for one whole day gives you confidence that you can do the same another day.

    Well done :)

    Reminds me of the old saying.....A walk of a thousand miles begins with a single step......

    You've taken the first step and I think that first step is the most important :)

    This is exactly how I made it as far as I have. I had a different mindset and I remember laying down that first night and being excited and proud for making it through the first day. The next morning, I woke up the next morning and remembered the day before and was immediately pumped to start the day. I've been doing this for over a year and still wake up happy when I kept on track the previous day. Good job! It gets easier.

    Thanks everybody for the positive responses. Today was my weigh in day and I am down 7.2 pounds. As the week as gone on I have been feeling more energy and the struggle is becoming easier. It's amazing what cutting out certain foods, drinking water and exercising can do.

    I know I can't expect this kind of weight loss over the course of this journey but it sure is a nice jump start.

    Just started myself. Add me if you like.

    I love this! Starting is the hardest part for me. Once I make up my mind to just DO IT ALREADY, I'm just stubborn enough to do keep doing it :)
